Hunted By The Pack

For thousands of years dogs and humans have lived with  an unspoken bond, ever since wolves evolved into cooperation with mankind our mutual understanding and trust has been beneficial to both species. Though not all men have had the noblest and truest intentions breaking that trust, every year millions of dogs are released into the…

Scourge Of The Outback:Razorback

If you follow my blog it’s clear that I consider the 80’s the Golden Age of Horror, I am a huge fan of practical effects as well as giant monsters in the “Natural Horror” genre and the 1980’s was abundant with both.

Don’t Hang Up Review

In the age of Saw it is difficult to make a well constructed smart horror, the eight sequels have failed  adding nothing more than gore porn. Don’t Hang Up decently recreates smart horror in more of a reproduction than homage but what movie is not a duplicate from the story that preceded it? Two high…

Sounds like a standard 80’s schlock creature feature, and it was, but it also symbolized the pinnacle of 80’s  horror classics….

Filleted With A Bone Tomahawk

Blending of genres is an interesting way to inject a stale plot with an invigorating and fresh life, Bone Tomahawk at first could be considered a Western film with a horror subplot but I would argue that writer and director S. Craig Zahler created a horror thesis in a Western setting. Bone Tomahawk begins  with a…

Japanese Horror Wants Their Movie Back

In 2013 David Sandberg created a short for the Who’s There Film Challenge it depicts a women turning the lights off in the hallway of her apartment to reveal a creature that is stalking her through the dark.The full length feature film Lights Out it’s based on produced by James Wann held such promise, it seemed this…

James Wan: Horror Icon

Any horror fan could say that the Saw franchise without a doubt has impacted the genre in a major way. Either you enjoy all the films or think the series should have ended with the first there is no question that the original Saw (2004) is a ground breaking and epic horror film. We have…
